FWF - Filled with Love

Today I am Filled with Love and Joy because yesterday my December KOTM from Unity arrived which meant I got to play with these new stamps in time for Friday Friends with Flair.  This whole set is Filled with Love literally ........with lots of wonderful images and sentiments relating to love......but the stamp I was most looking forward to receiving was one of a Jar.

Yes that's right a Jar.  Why a Jar you ask.....well its because you can fill that jar with just about anything your heart desires and because I love making ATC's and can't draw for quids, it means I can now participate in the 'In A Jar Swaps'.... over at ATC's For All.

But this is really getting off the track, because today I have two Cards, Filled with Love, using this fabulous Jar and a couple of other stamps from the December KOTM to share with you.


For this first card I made a piece of crayon resist patterned background paper in my chosen colours to coordinate with the cardstock and add some interest by making a small colour block panel to go behind my jar.  The same crayon resist piece was used for a punched strip down one side of the card also.


For this second card I used the zigzag stamp from the December KOTM with my Kaleidocolour Ink Pad and Brayer to give a multi colour effect and filled my jar with hearts in the same colours.  Purple is one of my favorite colours however similar to pink  it doesn't photograph that well or that true to color unfortunately.

I just love my December KOTM and can see that it will be one I reach for often.  It is filled with love just like my post today.  So in ending if you Love Unity, are looking for Love-ly Inspiration be sure to pop over to the Unity Blog.

I am also entering these loved themed cards today in the Paper Players Challenge #77 - All You Need is Love!
